Another cult television favorite is being saved from cancellation by an online streaming service. This time, instead of Arrested Development or The Killing being picked up by Netflix, Yahoo is reviving the recently cancelled Community.
Yahoo Screen has ordered a complete sixth season of Community, which was cancelled because of falling ratings despite a dedicated and vocal fan base that had managed to save the show in the past. Since the cancellation of the show there has been wide-spread speculation that a streaming service would pick up Community and its devoted fans, though Yahoo was, perhaps, an unlikely bet. The 13 episodes of the sixth season will likely air for free with commercials on Yahoo Screen.
